[Rasch] FACETS design

Hi Ricardo,
In order to conduct a multifacet analysis the theoretical requirement is
that all the raters examine all the subjects.

For sure, you cannot apply this design across countries. Here, you will
want to test the requirement of invariance of the item difficulties trans
culturally, i.e. the absence of DIF by Country.

Regarding the within-Country facet design, its feasibility depends on the
amount of missing rater data.

I Hope this helps
